A few words from our entrepreneurs
“Being accelerated by WILCO allowed us to build skills in different areas, from recruitment to management and customer acquisition. The WILCO Entrepreneur Loan enabled us to recruit our first interns and finalize prototyping. Regular support from WILCO experts was essential in winning and negotiating with our first clients. “
A few words from our large companies
Managing Director, Accelair
“Air Liquide has been partnering with WILCO for several years now. This partnership has been reinforced since ACCELAIR implemented Deep Tech, our startup accelerator. ACCELAIR helps WILCO analyze startups during the selection phase to identify and source the most compatible ones. Of all the events organized by WILCO, the “Reverse Pitch” helped us identify 3 interesting startups. These discussions could lead to the implementation of concept proofs to test the technologies developed, a new tool that supports Air Liquide’s open innovation strategy. “
